Going out on a limb here. What are you running oilwise in the gearbox? It better not be ATF. The big hose is the crankcase breather. What year is your WR?

Does the oil you run in your engine have a redish color? If it is, then that pinkish dishcharge is perfectly normal. My oil is amber and discharges a few whitish milky looking drops sometimes. Without going into detail why this occurs, it's basically a result of a little bit of moisture mixing in with the hot oil vapors that are vented via that big line.

make sure you are using 4-stroke oil and NOT 2-stroke gearbox oil, i know the honda 2-stroke oil is red in color.
